LP on 180-gram vinyl. Ryan Adams and his backing band The Cardinals go full country with the rollicking 2005 "Jacksonville City Nights." From honky tonk swagger to lovelorn torch songs, Adams and company go all out for a strong album that has a dedicated following. "A Kiss Before I Go" and "The End" get the blood pumping, and a guest duet with Norah Jones on "Dear John" steals the show. The Cardinals keep a steady hand on the tiller from country swing to Hank Williamsesque heartache. Always a stickler for sound quality, Ryan Adams makes sure this double album is at it's best on this original pressing on 180-gram audiophile vinyl. Lost Highway Records.
